I Finally Make IT! 80 MPH
Last week after installing all my new goodies that came from santa I went out for a test run. Initially it felt pretty good and I got 1 run in some clean water and it went right up to 78 but I ran out of room so I continued riding and when I got the chance again could only hit 74 74 mph @ 8250 rpm and 9 psi. W.T.F. is going on here. Thought it might be the 42lbs injectors, maybe it was too rich being that it was 97 degrees out. Nope that wasnt it, come to find out that the intake grate inserts had poped out and I had bigtime DRAG. . So after fixing the problem I went out today and here are my results: 85 degree air temp.
84 degree water temp
Rpm's between 8380 and 8440(pretty consistant)
Consistant 79 +'s w/ full tank
80.0-80.7 half tank (8 runs)
Here is the proof!

Mods are basicly a Riva stage II with the RR wheel and 42# injectors.
